    the scare is getting smaller, and on my first shoot this weekend.

    here you go lads, the neck is getting there,still a fare bit of swelling etc but it feels better already , the double chin bit is where the nerves on the left side of the face shoulder and arm had been trapped, and im happy to say thats all lifted back into place.

    i hope to get out shooting sooner rather than later, nothing to big, just the 17 and the 20 tac will do for now.

    been just under 3 weeks and its still rather tender, they say you will not see the scare in about 3/4 weeks, the voice is still very croaky and the windpipe crushing makes it hard to breath when talking, and still very hard to swallow,

    i did not want to show my whole ugly mush as it would make a few of you sick,

    but we'll get there.

    bob.

    Hi Bob
    It looks like we have had the same done, i had the op on the 22nd December and took the photo this morning of the scar. I was told to get some bio oil on it twice a day it stops the itching real quick. i purchased my new rifle whilst recovering over the Xmas period and zeroed it after about 3 weeks, but i was sweating a bit with the pain. i had my first driven day the last sat in Jan but struggled a bit on the high birds, i am currently pretty good but still sometimes it catches me out a little. Anyway hope you heal ok and get out shooting soon.

    Hi Bob,
    Here's a picture of some surgery I had done with the result.
    Six hour operation, nine days in hospital and plays havoc at air line check in.
    The guy in the next bed to me didn't survive the anasthetic and he was a lot younger than me.
    Similar to my lower back but done in a military hospital so no pictures.
    Now you know why I 'Creep' instead of Stalk

    hi Mark

    spot on mate, using the bio oil 2 times a day now, "it the scare you have hard or soft" anyway when i was first told they they were going to take 3/4 discs away i was not to happy but when they removed 5/6 the pressure on 4/7 was released so to save doing to much they left it at that and im glad really, time to recover etc.

    how you getting on, im still not allowed to drive yet but i hope to see if i can get out this weekend.
